    Cookies were wonderful texture and taste, but a bit too sweet for me. I had to adjust cook time just a bit :)

    Excellent recipe! Cooked each batch the full 10 minutes. Best choco chip cookies I’ve made ever! Dough gets really heavy and thick.

    I would make it again! Maybe a bit more wet ingredients to make it spread a little more (just my preference), however the overall flavour was great!

    Soft but dry. Didn’t spread, so I ended up with cookie blobs. Flavor was good though.

    Very soft with just the right amount of crunch around the edges. I found them to be a flatter cookie just like the picture but absolutely delicious!😋

    i looked at several recipes and this one looked like one my husband would be happy to eat. He is a picky eater as of late. well it was a hit. he ate 5 just out of oven. it made 3 dozen. they are soft and a little crispy on the outside. Will definitely make again. Buy extra milk and serve cold.

    Delicious and soft. They were a bit too sweet for my taste but my husband loved them. I made a half recipe and used even less chocolate chips then was called for. Will definitely use this recipe again since it was so quick and easy!

    They aren't too sweet, so you can eat a hand full without realizing it. The recipe makes a great chocolate chip cookie and wonderful brown sugar cookies.

    This is a real keeper. They truly are soft not to mention delicious. I added some chopped walnuts to mine. I consider these to be the best chocolate chip cookies in my recipe box.

    So good! I ended up making the extra large cookies and baking them for 14 min, the cookies did not come out as big as the picture but that didn't matter because they were delicious!

    Delicious! I cut the recipe in half and they came out perfect. I don't think they'll last too long in the house!
